About me

I am a licensed counselor in Missouri with 12+ years of professional work experience. I have experience helping clients cope with addictions, parenting issues, motivation, depression, anxiety, self-esteem, confidence, and executive and professional coaching. I work with my clients to create an open and safe environment where thoughts and feelings can be shared without fear of judgment. I work from various evidence-based modalities and tailor sessions to clients’ needs, empowering them to drive the therapy. I believe it’s essential to understand the “why” behind the thoughts and the feelings, and I enjoy incorporating psychoeducation about brain and trauma responses when appropriate.

Cassandra is great.

She understands my issues and let’s me free associate as necessary while still getting me to focus on goals for improvement.

She touched base with me throughout the week and seems to be attuned to my mental health and my needs.
